Why would I cry? I've been trading and investing in COP for about 6-7 years and have always made money on it. I did get out in the $80 with a $30 profit and bought back at $49.75 a year ago, sold the 2010 50 SP call leaps against them for $976, then rolled over to the 2011 $55 LEAPS for $575 .BUT, if you were a buy and hold person only all you'd have to show for your 6 year investment is the divy.
you've been WHINING old fella. this'll make you SOB now. Now some one who's awful close to me bought the FJs [and that don't stand for FU&K JESUS] a couple of weeks ago for .80 CENTS and was forced to sell today [wink-wink, nudge-nudge] for $6.00. Now take a few days and do the math and eatcher heart out. I buyed and tried to Hold but couldn't [tsk, tsk]. Now you try to have yer weekly bowel movement and monthly bath and go FU%K yerself.
